Beautiful and serene!
Beautiful and serene! We had the place all to ourselves. Amazing and so relaxing. Loved laying on the king sized outdoor bed and looking over the amazing ocean view (at least the first few cottages have a view - only the villa is right on the beach).Manager is very nice and responsive. Service is nice and with a smile, but be prepared to slow down. Restaurant is small and right on the lovely pool, but very, very basic and quite limited. Wonderful break at the white sandy Galu beach!
